TC's now 153 baht instead of 33 to exchange...

Posted by altmtl on 12/10/2014 at 22:49

I guess I was out of the loop, but the fee for changing TC's in Thailand is now 153 baht instead of 33 since March '14 - WTF! Not that many people use them any more, but now just going to an ATM makes more sense as most branches charge - 150 - 180 baht on a max withdrawal which is usually 20,000. SuperRich & Vasu are good options if you have cash, but otherwise... ...

Posted by jamtastx on 12/10/2014 at 12:06

Hi guys, Just came across the forum a couple of days ago and some really good information on here. Myself and by boyfriend are headed to Bangkok from Brussels - arriving Sunday morning the 19th. We are nature lovers who love adventure and not really up for the touristy spots. We never the less plan to spend 2 or 3 nights in Bangkok but afterwards we're not sure. There's so much to see! We'd like to split things between trekking and spending some times in either the lake or the sea. We would ha ...

Chiang Mai help...

Posted by rudder6 on 6/10/2014 at 21:39

Hey fellow travelers! Just arrived in Chiang Mai today. First impressions are I will love this place. Left Bangkok on the sleeper train which was a pleasant journey aswell. We are just finding out feet as we have never been backpacking before. We found out the hard way in Bangkok being naive and over charged for stuff (1000thb for boat) which is only 40thb !! Took us a couple of days to get wise. In hoping to avoid this in Chiang Mai and wonder if you have any tips on saving money how much sho ...

Hello! My partner and I are heading to Cambodia in just over a week and are planning to spend about three weeks in the middle of our trip in Thailand. I'm curious about the social climate in the country these days... Is there still a curfew imposed? Has travel been noticeably affected? Anyone have any safety concerns or tips to share? We are not planning on staying in Bangkok or Chang Mai - likely we will fly into Bangkok and head straight for a bus to Issan. Our time will be spent in that pr ...

First time in Thailand (Bangkok, Chiang Mai, ??)

Posted by aaaazzzz on 28/9/2014 at 23:48

Hello, I'll be visiting Thailand by myself for the first time from Dec 1-10. At the top of my to-do list is good food. I'm not into sight seeing at all. Given the fact that I only have about 8 days (taking travel time into consideration), initially I thought of only going to Chiang Mai and Bangkok but the more I read about the wonderful beaches in the south, the more I feel like visiting one. I'm not looking for crazy parties or big crowds (I live in NYC so I get enough of that here) but sin ...

Three Pagoda Pass, Khao Laem and Srinakharin

Posted by Max2010 on 22/9/2014 at 08:50

I have travelled extensively in Thailand but never done much in the Western fringes. I have been to Mae Sot and Tak and Nam Tok. This December I will have access to a car and was thinking of doing some fishing at Srinakharin but was now thinking of Khao Laem and including Three Pagoda Pass as it has always been somewhere I wanted to go. How long does it take to drive from Kanchanaburi as the road on the map looks like it might be challenging and at the end of the day will it be worth it. H ...

Hey guys, I'm going on my first trip to Thailand (three weeks, arriving on Thursday) with a friend and am very excited - this site has proven to be a terrific source for information and quite useful for planning so far. However, I'm not so sure about our initial plans of going to Chiang Mai and travelling around there for a bit (from Sunday or Monday on - for a week or so) anymore since according to recent news, it seems to be quite chaotic around there because of the monsoon, floodings etc.. ...
